It Is Done

Wed, Jan. 06, 2016 Posted: 11:08 AM


Merrill isn't home this am, so I'm sitting in the living room comfortable. I'm toasty, all snuggled up like a bug in a big comforter rug. I'm CONTENT. As I sit down to read the internet gossip rags, and begin to write my opinions on the daily events (I write for three other sites. Cool right?) the worst thing that could happen today has happened. Lets just say its 5:30am and Duchess is up. Oh, that's bad, real bad. I think it's going to be a long day.
Sigh, it was going to be a long day anyway. Honestly, I get why parenthood is a partnership. When one is dead in spirit, the other can come in, tap out, and pick up where the other left off. Yep, it's been like that since she came into our lives. I wonder which came first. Her spirit, or "The Experiences"? Well, even in my belly we had issues, remember? This little girl has been through some mess, she has The Eye of the Tiger, NO she has Tiger Blood, NO she's WINNING. I do believe It IS gonna help her later! The only EEG I've ever witnessed was the one with Duchess, as she was post dictal. She has no knowledge or memory of her head being scrubbed for the electrodes, the forced state of rest, the blinding 4th and final seizure that nearly took her life from us. ARGH, my mind won't even let me go back to that day. Well today she'll remember, because today, it isn't an emergency. Today IT ENDS! I'm supposed to show up at the hospital with a very sleepy baby, and honestly, had the test been in Danville, I could have done that, but I must drive 30 miles, with a toddler whose been up since 5:30am, and expect her to not to sleep in the car? Heck, you're lucky if I don't fall asleep myself, but I don't complain because today is the day we've waited two years to experience. Lord, I hope this is the beginning of the end.
I'm so excited that I could pee myself. Merrill is driving down from WI so he can be with me. The MVP Tag Team, the Tap Out. It starts when I see his face, it ends when the test is over. We started this ride together, we finish together. We are Bad Boys for life (giggle). Pray for the EEG, pray for her, pray for us. Let me take a moment to thank someone very special to me. Thank you Father for seeing us through this because even when I was down and out, you stood firm, and let me keep my baby girl. I will praise your name forever. We're almost done. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Wednesday.
